While Aussie winters are admittedly pretty mild, it’s still pretty dang hard leaving the comfort of our beds behind each day. We’ve all stumbled out of bed on a chilly morning and wondered ‘would it really be that unacceptable to wear my blanket to work today?’ Well, we’ve got some good news for you. Thanks to a new winter fashion trend, you can—well, sort of!
Enter, the coatigan. Otherwise known as a sweater coat, this is basically the upper body equivalent of jeggings (only way warmer!). It looks just like a stylish winter coat (but usually made out of wool), and it feels like your cosiest dressing gown.
You can layer them over your skinny jeans and boots, a winter dress and stockings or even your athleisure gear and sneakers—and nobody would ever guess just how damn snug you are, because you look so fab. Yep, we’re obsessed.
